Life often leads us down unexpected paths, a truth Kwelli Sneed knows all too well. A graduate of the GWU e-Co Leadership Coaching Program, she now serves as the interim director of the Office of Neighborhood Safety Engagement. Initially joining as Chief of Staff during tumultuous times in the District of Columbia, Kwelli assumed the role of Director following the tragic passing of her friend and colleague, Linda Harlee Harper. She shares insights into navigating these transitions, staying true to herself, and utilizing skills honed through the program.

Photography, a passion reignited through a vivid dream reminiscent of her late aunt Sandra, led her to rediscover its significance during the pandemic's chaos, eventually leading her to use photography as the throughline in her coaching. Kwelli discovered the benefits of having her coaching clients use photography to tell the story of who they are, in both their professional and personal lives.

During the episode, Bonnie Bucker, Ina Gjikondi, and Kwelli also explore the concept of "line" and "curve," which is a cornerstone of the GWU Leadership Program and is described as representing distinct energies. Kwelli, who identifies as a "line" – analytical and methodical, recognizes the importance of personalizing one's passion as well, a characteristic of someone who describes themselves as a “curve” and follows the twists and turns of life as they come. Inspired by a fellow coach's use of photography in palliative care, she delves into how images evoke emotions and memories, integrating her passion with the science of career coaching, and harmonizing her dual identities.

Kwelli demonstrates photography's transformative power by recounting a unique community initiative, providing cameras to teenagers, predominantly boys. Witnessing their introspection and aspirations through their work, she illustrates how photography can empower individuals to explore their identities and aspirations.

This conversation acts as a thoughtful reminder to see beyond any barriers you think you may face and to always keep in mind what you’re passionate about. You won’t want to miss Kwelli’s story and how she has stocked her toolbox with tools that will help her use her passions to drive her career.
